The two day etching course is designed to take you from idea to finished etching, with Liorah Tchiprout. This hands on short course will cover the basics of hard ground, soft ground and aquatint. With full explanations of each process and a sprinkling of print history, this course aims to demystify etching, and show how, you too, can make great prints.
This course is for you whether you have produced etchings before and need a refresher, to having never stepped foot in a print studio before! And if you fall in love with etching and wish to continue, there will be further opportunities to use the studio more independently, too, at our tuesday evening sessions Etching Club, also hosted by Liorah, and at open access sessions.

Monoprint Masterclass with Morgan Doyle
Mono printing from metal - "The layering process which changes what we see, the very simple process of print and the complexity of art."
Includes a final day criteria and discussion of the work produced.
It will be very much the way Morgan makes his work - a combination of techniques and layering which can include etching mono printing chine colle plus manual additions. The course is very much aimed at inspiring a free creative approach combining the advantages of painting and printmaking. We both have the view that many printmakers become trapped by techniques inhibiting their natural creative instincts, this course is designed to break past the technical barriers and work spontaneously and freely.
A two day course.
